"1st published in October of 2014 by 1 of my favorite bloggers (Becky @ thecookierookiedotcom), this recipe is perfect summer fare & pure creative genius IMHO. Here's how Becky describes her recipe: "Watermelon Pizza is a delicious & fun sweet treat that everyone will enjoy! Juicy watermelon topped w/a low-fat cheesecake sauce, fresh strawberries, bananas, white chocolate chips & pecans is the ultimate healthy dessert, but still indulgent. This refreshing cheesecake watermelon pizza is an easy summer dessert you’ll want to eat all season long!" ENJOY!"

Step 1

Using an electric mixer, mix together the yogurt, cream cheese & powdered sugar (if using) until well-combined. Set aside to chill in your fridge so it will be spreadable.

Step 2

Look at the top & bottom surfaces of the watermelon slice & gently remove any seeds, but do not go digging for them. Place your watermelon slice on a lrg plate or platter.

Step 3

Spread the cream cheese mixture over the watermelon slice, like you would do w/a "pizza sauce".

Step 4

Top w/sliced bananas & strawberries. Sprinkle on the pecans (or walnuts) & the white chocolate chips. Cut into 6 slices (like pizza wedges) & serve cold. ENJOY!

Step 5

NOTE RE MY PIC: I dealt w/some ingredient issues as best I could. We're at the start of the watermelon season here in Iceland, so they are very sml (a generous serving for 1 or 2 med-sized servings). I used walnuts & cut a sml white choc bar into cubes for those toppings. My pic was the outcome, but in the interest of full disclosure -- This is messy to eat, so have napkins ready (esp for kids). I was orig attracted to this recipe because of the flavor combo & its unique presentation, but admit a deconstructed version appeals more to me now = A pile of watermelon cubes plus strawberries & banana slices, topped w/a generous drizzle of the cream cheese sauce & finally the chopped white chocolate & walnuts. :-)
